Abstract: Recently, the percentage of plastic parts used in motor cars has been increasing,and they are required to be painted to the same high standard as the motor car bodies. Accordingly, the percentage of that painting requirement has been increasing. Reorganizing the processes of moulding and painting plastic parts into a flexible, efficient integrated system to improve the production rationality is therefore an urgent task. In Suzuki Motor Co., an existing plastic moulding shop was reorganized to allow a series of production processes such as moulding, palletizing, storage, painting and assembly to be automatically controlled via computers, thereby reducing the workers and floor space, improving productivity, and reducing the stocks as well.
